Sounds like a fun trip! I took my '01 from near STL to Rockville, MD last summer. I went 64-> 79-> 68. Nice drive, and the best tank the Boxster returned was 34 mpg. I opted to have the top up for most of the drive... 900 miles of sticky humidity isn't my idea of a fun drive.

The practical sports car... fit my bike, riding gear, camera gear, and clothes for a week in the thing with room to spare:

As far as hotels in STL are concerned, depends on the part of town... just avoid East St. Louis! Maybe check out for some ideas.

Oh, if you wouldn't normally do this, avoid Arby's as well. Nothing like being stuck in the middle of Illinois in a traffic jam with a grumble down under from a bad batch of roast "beef".
